Influenza is a virus that most often affects the upper respiratory tract. It is commonly referred to as the flu, or a the common cold. Different sources will suggest these conditions as being different, however, they are both caused by influeza.
there are 3 main types of influenza, A, B, and C. Most infections are the result of influenza A and B. Out of these two, influenza A is far more common, and tends to be more severe.
Most people who are infected with influenza will remain sick for several days before recovering, however, some strains, such as the H1N1 strain that wiped out nearly 6% of the worlds population during the Spanish Flu outbreak, are far more deadly. Even less severe influenza infections take the lives of the young, the old and the weak on a regular basis.
